People love Nordic shows about murder, and people love true crime. These are two things I know about the world. The Norwegian drama The Lørenskog Disappearance is both at once: a fictionalized retelling of the disappearance of a billionaire's wife. It debuts at No. 10 on Netflix's Top 10 TV Shows list on Friday, Sept. 16, knocking Stranger Things back off the list. Over on the movies side, nothing has joined the ranking, but expect Do Revenge — a new dark comedy starring Maya Hawke and Camila Mendes — to make waves over the weekend.

But popular doesn't necessarily mean good. Below, we list the top 10 movies and shows on Netflix and give our quick take on whether they're actually worth watching or not. We've also added what's new on Netflix today so you can find out what will be on the Top 10 list tomorrow.
